Sorry, this variety is no longer available.
Here are a few other plants to consider as alternatives to Salvia gesneriiflora 'Mole Poblano':
(Mexican Mountain Scarlet Sage) Dark red calyxes cup the large red flowers of this lovely Mexican native which blooms from early winter through spring. Although this clone of Salvia gesneriiflora
is dwarf form, it grows 6 feet tall and wide similar to our other dwarf, Salvia gesneriiflora
'Green Calyx Form', which we've nicknamed "Tiny." We'll call this one "Tiny Too."
(Big Mexican Scarlet Sage) This heavily blooming Salvia from Mexico has heart-shaped leaves and spectacular flower spikes up to 18 inches long from winter through spring. The blooms are bright red-orange with rich purple-black calyxes.
(Cabrillo Giant Yellow Sage) Large apricot-yellow flowers are an attraction of this cross between two Mexican species -- Salvia madrensis (Forsythia Sage) and the volcanic sage Salvia gesneriiflora (Mexican Scarlet Sage).
(Raspberry Truffle Sage) Hybrid sages with Big Mexican Scarlet Sage parentage (Salvia gesnerifolia
) tend to have thick clusters of large, deep purple flowers supported by bracts that are almost black.
